Pedagogical Principles for Academic Excellence (Here's the "Why?")

“What is of paramount importance in the pre-university stage is not what is learned but learning how to learn...What matters is not the absorption and regurgitation either of fact or pre-digested interpretations of facts, but the development of powers of the mind or ways of thinking which can be applied to new situations and new presentation of facts as they arise.” Peterson (1972)

“Approaches to teaching and learning are deliberate strategies, skills and attitudes that permeate the teaching and learning environment. These approaches and tools, intrinsically linked with the IB learner profile attributes, enhance student learning and assist student preparation for DP assessment and beyond.” (Approaches to teaching and learning guide, PRC on MyIB)
